Sheriff's Office: Nearly-naked man causes bomb scare at Daytona airport

"We received the call of a naked man running around in the terminal", Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said.

Chitwood revealed Greenwood was "well known" to local police and had been arrested a number of times previously.

"This is one of those things where truth is stranger than fiction, to say the least", Chitwood said at a news conference, several hours after the airport was evacuated.

He entered a ladies bathroom that was still under construction, left the bag behind a hole in some sheetrock, and exited the restroom without any clothes.

He then came out of the bathroom, wearing nothing but his socks and a watch, and climbed onto the luggage carousel while holiday makers looked on horrified. "He was naked. He was on the baggage carousel trying to get out onto the tarmac".

Witnesses interviewed Friday morning at the airport said a man emerged from an airport bathroom nude and started making bomb threats.

It was said that he was taken into custody at least twice before, under the state's Baker Act for mental evaluations.

Deputies subdued the man with a Taser and arrested him without a fight.

Volusia County deputies say the suspect is in custody.

"This is all federal, what he did here", Chitwood said, adding that he believed the FBI would be investigating. Airport officials confirmed that the suspect had indeed stuffed something into the wall, and contacted the police and bomb squads. The bomb's going to go off.

They found the man, starkers, in the baggage claim area.

"I planted a bomb in the bathroom", Chitwood said the suspect told deputies.

Greenwood has addresses in Daytona Beach and Port Orange, according to Chitwood.

After being transferred to Halifax Health, Greenwood told deputies he had ingested drugs, including ecstasy.

Greenwood was last arrested in 2017 for aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

Two flights were about to depart, but they did not leave.

No flights were canceled, just rescheduled, and passengers had to wait outside the airport for about an hour and half, said Jay Cassens, an airport spokesman.
